Strong Safeties

Joining the Johns Hopkins coaching staff this season is Matt Hagel, a 2007 Johns Hopkins graduate and one of the top defensive players in the recent history of the Centennial Conference.

Hagel, who will coach the Blue Jay strong safeties this season, earned First Team All-Centennial honors as a strong safety (OLB) as a senior after garnering Second Team All-CC status as a sophomore and junior. He concluded his career with 263 tackles to his credit, the most by a Johns Hopkins player in more than a decade. The MVP of the 2004 ECAC Southeast Championship game against Waynesburg, Hagel posted 106 tackles as a sophomore, the most by a Johns Hopkins player since 1993. He led the team in tackles as a sophomore and senior and finished second as a junior.

Hagel's individual exploits were instrumental in helping the seniors on the 2006 team finish as the third-winningest class in school history with a 32-11 record. He helped JHU to ECAC Championships in 2003 and 2004 before guiding the team to the program's first outright Centennial title and appearance in the NCAA Playoffs in 2005. Hopkins had shared the 2003 and 2004 Centennial Conference titles.
